DGENE Derwent Genesequence database
The GENESEQ database contains information on nucleic acid and protein sequences extracted from the Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI) basic patent documents published by 48 patent offices worldwide. Coverage includes all nucleotide sequences longer than nine bases, all protein sequences longer than three amino acids and probes and primers of any length. More than half of the sequence data that appears in DGENE is not available in any other public sequence database. Records contain bibliographic information; Clarivate Analytics assigned titles, abstracts, detailed indexing, and the sequence data. DGENE contains the GETSEQ searching package for exact match sequence searching in the file. Two algorithms are available for similarity searching of protein and nucleotide sequences: FASTA based GETSIM, and BLAST. Additionally, sequence similarity based current-awareness search- ing is made available via the ALERT feature.
